Stacey asks:
I have used GL before and I was researching some companies and came across Jaia Inc in Brooklyn and wanted to know if 2000.00 for a full head of Russian virgin human hair extensions is a reasonable price?

It is very difficult to confirm if the hair is authentic as this is not a regulated market at the moment. Because of the popularity of hair enhancement and extensions at the moment, the prices can range from £150 UK to £1, 000 UK. It has been known for some celebrities or wealthy customers to pay over £3, 000 UK but often they would be attended to by a celebrity hair stylist or a very exclusive and private consultant.

I would recommend that you check out the portfolio of the consultant who has quoted you. See how exclusive their client base is and how many clients they have attended to in the last 12 months. This will give you an indication of their status. If you are convinced and feel confident that they will not only do a fabulous job, but will guarantee their work and product if you should become unhappy, then these are some of the benefits you pay for when you go top end.

Angela asks:
Have you heard of coil links done strand by strand and how safe are they claimed to be?

Yes we have. There are over 34 different types of hair extension/enhancement techniques. All of which have been designed to suit different hair types, life styles, durability and economical preferences. ...More >

Most hair extension techniques which are non invasive if applied by a properly qualified and experience technician and maintained within the correct time span should not cause your hair or scalp to deteriorate. I must however advise that if the technician is not properly trained to remove any form of strand by strand technique or if the client attempts to remove them or unpick them themselves, then this is where most of the problem sets in.

It is also worth checking out if the coils are silicon coated, this will help to avoid any rust or chemical reaction when they come into contact with some of the commercial hair care products.

Jordan asks:
I have extremely thick coarse curly hair and I'm really not sure how to get it cut. the hair stylist I've been going to, really doesn't know how to cut my hair. So I'm looking for a new hair stylist, but are there certain ways or techniques for cutting curly hair? Also, I've heard combing a perm through curly hair takes out the frizz, is that true?

Iím over the moon to hear you are sourcing a new hair stylist. Once someone has taken a pair of scissors to your hair, it is all too late to rectify, and it is important that you trust your hairdresser. íProtectioní really is better than cure! A good, professional hairdresser will advise which styles are open to you, and will take into consideration the length of your hair and the volume of curl. I would recommend that if in its natural state, is beyond shoulder length, to perhaps opt for a sweeping fringe, (no shorter than your chin when curly) with a few layers so when the hair is straighten with irons, you can have a versatile look; the fringe could be secured in a quiff, or flicked out to give you that beyonce-esque look, with cascading layers. My new Poker Straight and Kinda Curly Irons (£48, Promo £33 Exclusive to Boots) are just the trick, with their curved plate edges they are perfect for straightening and curling, and the tourmaline ceramic floating plates guarantee perfect parallel straightening for less snagging and stress to hair. Protect as you style with my P250 Professional Curling Iron Protection Mist (£6.99-200ml exclusive To Boots) or Kodo Thermal Protecting Spray, it is proven to protect hair from the heat damaging effects of irons up to 250c, and sprayed onto dry hair before styling, the product will secure curls with a non-crispy lasting hold, even in high humidity.
